A group of four of us had dinner here and loved it. The food was lovely Portuguese cuisine - my husband is still raving about the mixed seafood pasta he enjoyed there. The staff were very helpful and welcoming.

this seafood restaurant is on the highway near the cabo da roca overlook. the kitchen is spot on with presenting fresh local seafood dishes. the desserts were equally good and homemade. service is friendly and quick. pricing is fair. definitely worth a stop over for lunch after exploring the nearby cabo da roca.
